Asians, who are the backbone of the Ugandan economy, have been living in the country for more than a century.

 

Conservative MP Ronald Bell said Uganda’s Asians had no real links to Britain.

Speaking on behalf of the Monday Club’s Immigration Committee, Mr Bell said: "They were either born in India or have retained close connection with India.

"They have no connection with Britain either by blood or residence."

 

Comment: Now after 34 years the same Asians (Hindus, Muslims, Sikhs, Christians, Buddhists etc) from Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, India and elsewhere have, as the most successful immigrants amongst the immigrant groups, become major contributors in the British Economy but have demanded very little. As David Cameron, Conservative Leader, recently said of them in Leicester "In a sense, you’re victims of your own success"
